As a person ages, mineral exposure causes the teeth to gradually darken. Over time, some food, drink, or tobacco products also create unattractive yellowish-brown stains. Less commonly, you may experience discoloration due to some medications or bacterial infections.
We offer custom take-home and in office whitening treatments to eliminate discoloration and give you a brighter, more attractive smile.
Whitening procedures are not a solution for all discoloration (e.g. darkening caused by cavities). Dr. Sheppard will help you determine the best solution for your dental concerns.
We will fabricate a custom tray to fit your teeth, and provide you with a whitening gel ranging from mild to extra strong. Over the course of a few days you wear your custom trays for approximately 30 minutes daily. This produces a gradual change in the color of your teeth.
